Environmental Conservation Experience

What is an overseas internship?

Going on an overseas internship involves working in an overseas company for a specific amount of time to gain international job experience. Most people go on an overseas internship as part of an obligatory university internship or voluntarily after leaving school or during their studies. In order to improve your job prospects, you should make sure to tailor your internship based on the field that you want to work in.


The benefit of an overseas internship

The main purpose of an overseas internship is to acquire international job experience and contacts. An overseas internship shows future employers that you are flexible and can handle new situations and environments. An internship will help you find your professional footing and get an initial impression of what it’s like to work in a particular field.

An overseas internship also allows you to improve your foreign language skills. Foreign language skills are becoming increasingly important due to the continued globalisation of the world economy, and can be considered an essential qualification for many job roles. An overseas internship will allow you to practice how to interact with foreign colleagues or read specialist texts which are not in your native language.

An internship can also expose you to new methods, tools or solutions which you can use later in your professional life.

Why do I need to pay NATUCATE?

There are a number of reasons why we have to charge for our service.

Professional and well qualified employees are required to help interns acclimatise to their role and manage them during their work. Another cost factor is the logistics involved in supplying food, electricity, water etc., as many of our internship locations are in remote regions in the heart of natural landscapes. Transport during a project and providing equipment also cost money.

The team at NATUCATE will take care of your placement and can provide advice about any questions that you might have. We take pride in providing professional support for our customers and will help you with all of the planning that has to be done before you go on your internship.
